Delphi—It’s All Greek to Me

IMG_7043 Today the Regatta is docked at Itea, Greece, and our excursion was a 30-minute trip to Delphi to see a major archeological excavation.

Among the ancient ruins is the Temple of Apollo, home of the famous Oracle at Delphi.  Too bad we couldn’t have visited this site yesterday.  Maybe then I wouldn’t have been up at 3:30 a.m. looking for the results of the Arkansas-Auburn game.

Stopping in the town of Delphi, we got a panoramic view across the valley filled with olive trees.  The port of Itea is in the distance.


Thanks to everyone who tried to keep me up to speed with the ballgame.  I finally had to go to bed at halftime.  Looks like that was a wise move.  To all of my Auburn friends, I hope you run the tables, and that means beating you know who.

By the way, we had a whole bunch of happy Wisconsin Badgers at breakfast today.
